Visibility has been top of mind for logistics leaders over the past several years. Real-time location and condition insights became more important than ever as the coronavirus pandemic accelerated the e-commerce surge and consumer expectations around package visibility and on-time delivery skyrocketed.

At the same time, a veritable technological revolution continued across the transportation industry. This focus on high-tech solutions to age-old problems has yielded a plethora of real-time visibility solutions for shippers to choose from.

Despite the availability of solutions and the well-recognized importance of real-time visibility, however, many shippers still struggle to identify the best partners for them and their customers. 

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant stands out as one of the clearest – and most trusted – ways to evaluate the most popular real-time visibility options, providing shippers’ with a visual guide to their choices.

“Real-time transportation visibility continues to be a key priority for shippers, logistic providers and their customers,” according to Gartner. “Supply chain technology leaders can use this research for an overview of current market trends and vendors in the real-time transportation visibility platform space.”

Gartner’s MQ ranks companies on their ability to execute and the completeness of their product vision. Depending on their scores, players are classified into one of three four categories: nice players, visionaries, challengers or leaders.

Companies classified as leaders are the highest ranked on both metrics, indicating a complete vision and the proven ability to execute it. project44 has been classified as a leader on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant every year since the ranking product launched in 2021.

“Leaders in the RTTVP market have broad, deep and differentiated functionality that addresses a broad range of user requirements,” according to Gartner. “Leaders listen to their customers; but, just as important, their customers look to them for thought leadership, and they establish symbiotic relationships.”

While p44 has been denoted as a leader for the past three years, this marks the first year that a single vendor has been positioned highest on ability to execute and furthest right on completeness of vision, surpassing its peers in both evaluated spheres.

Gartner called out sales execution/pricing, marketing execution and market responsiveness as p44’s three greatest strengths. This was due, in large part, to the company’s standout revenue, superior brand recognition and continuous innovation efforts. 

“We’re constantly innovating to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive supply chain visibility solution – with a network of 230,000+ carriers tracking shipments across 180+ countries,” said Jett McCandless, founder and CEO of project44. ​“Solving supply chain’s persistent challenges requires unrelenting commitment, and we’re grateful for the support of our customers in executing this important vision.” 

project44’s placement in this report comes on the heels of multiple recent product innovations to help customers better manage their supply chain, including in-terminal visibility, six other additions to their international visibility product suite, and two new self-service capabilities that enable E-Commerce retailers to take control of the post-purchase customer experience.

project44’s dedication to its customers shines through in the company’s reviews. project44 has the most overall reviews of any RTTVP vendor on Gartner® Peer Insights, and 94% of customers are also willing to recommend project44, as of May 2023.

“project44 is our one-stop-solution for all our visibility needs.
